The Gland Plan is the twelfth episode of Season 5.


Cosmo's fagiggly gland, the fairy organ that controls shape-shifting, is on the fritz. Cosmo needs to get a donation from his closest biological known biological match or else he can't be a fairy godparent anymore, and the only other being with a fagiggly gland available is Anti-Cosmo. However Jorgen will not let Anti-Cosmo out, so Timmy and his godparents must now find a way to break Anti-Cosmo out so they can do the transplant.


Mr. Turner about to eat Cosmo when he is cake.

Timmy is wondering if Vicky's Dad could move to New Zealand, making Vicky having to move to New Zealand as well. Cosmo thinks it is an excellent plan, but suddenly, Mr. Turner is coming into the kitchen where Timmy is. Wanda tells Cosmo to change into something inconspicuous. She changes into a shaker and he changes into a cake, but Mr. Turner eats him. In Timmy's room, Timmy tells Cosmo that he needs to be more careful of what he changes into. He says he knows, and tries to kiss Wanda. When he does, he accidentally shapeshifts into a fork poking Wanda. Timmy thinks that something is wrong with Cosmo, and he says no. Then he turns into a chainsaw almost cutting Wanda, but only her crown is destroyed. Cosmo then turns into other dangerous things and apologizes to her. When he tries to kiss Wanda again, he turns into a fork again. 

Timmy wants to know why Cosmo is constantly changing into the wrong things. Wanda thinks that there is something wrong with Cosmo's fagiggly gland. He says it's fine. But when they go to Dr. Rip Studwell's office, he says that Cosmo's fagiggly gland is not alright. Timmy asks him what is a fagiggly gland. Dr. Rip Studwell explains that it is an organ in the fairy body that allows it to shapeshift. Wanda wants to know if Cosmo is sick. The Doctor says it in words that even Cosmo could understand, by saying "yes" like a crazy person would. Cosmo thinks that since his fagiggly gland is out of control, he would have to quit being a fairy god parent and go to his old job. The doctor says that Cosmo has good news and bad news. The good news he is going to play golf at 2:30. The bad news is that there is only one way to stop Cosmo's fagiggly gland from going crazy. The way is to have a gland transplant. Wanda says that Cosmo has no siblings, so they go to Fairy World Prison to see Anti-Cosmo. He knows Cosmo's gland is going bad. Cosmo asks how he knows, and he tells him that he is smarter than Cosmo. Anti-Cosmo's is going good, and that means his days as an Anti-Fairy are coming to an end.

The only way to get out of prison is to tell Jorgen, who was there, that Cosmo needs to have a gland transplant with Anti-Cosmo. Jorgen says no, and he kicks Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda out. Timmy has a plan to bust Anti-Cosmo out of prison that he claims to be subtle and quiet. However, later he gets a large and very loud drill machine to dig into the ground and inside the prison. He can't hear what any other person inside the drill were saying, which is dangerous because Wanda was trying to say that all of Fairy World is on clouds, and that you can't drill on them. Cosmo tries to kiss Wanda, but turns into a fork again, but this time couldn't hear Wanda screaming. When Timmy drills, they fall through a cloud and land safely on another cloud. Wanda suggests a much better plan. During the track meet inside prison, Cosmo turns into a fork but Wanda has a shield this time. The Anti-Fairies try to escape prison. Anti-Cosmo tries to fly out of prison, but instead lands on a wall.

Timmy tries putting Anti-Cosmo on a hot air balloon, but fails when Cosmo turns into heavy things. Jorgen kicks them out of prison again. Dr. Rip Studwell appears on Wanda's wand and says that there is bad news and good news. The bad news is that if they don't make the transplant soon, it will be too late. The good news is that the doctor is doing well in golf. Suddenly, a sheet with another plan to bust Anti-Cosmo out of prison flies through the air and Timmy grabs it. The plan is to put Anti-Cosmo in a wheel and disguise Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda as laundry workers. Jorgen comes out and asks questions. He tries to put a pitch fork in the laundry to see Anti-Cosmo in pain, but instead finds out Anti-Cosmo is not in there. Unfortunately, Anti-Wanda says that Anti-Cosmo is in the wheel, spoiling the secret. He gets mad at her and says that even though Anti-Cosmo loves her, she's such an idiot which Wanda exaggeratedly relates. Jorgen tries to vaporize them and they try to look for a safe place. Cosmo suggests they go to the gate, but Jorgen has the key. Cosmo tries to shapeshift into a key, but instead turns into things that rhyme with key. When he finally turns into a key, they escape prison with Anti-Cosmo and go to the golf course where Dr. Rip Studwell is.

Jorgen's gland became out of control, and he went to find Anti-Jorgen. At the golf course, they say that Anti-Cosmo is here. He then says that there's good news, bad news (which Timmy, Cosmo and Wanda unsurprisingly predicted) and more good news. The first good news is that they made it to which they celebrated. The bad news is that they don't have enough time to make it to the hospital much to their disappointment. But the second good news is that he's a fairy doctor which means he can do the transplant here. He then begins the transplant with Dr. Rip Studwell advising Timmy and Wanda to look away as he pulled out a fairy chainsaw. Before the transplant, Cosmo said to Anti-Cosmo that if he doesn't survive the transplant, he would stay away from Wanda with Anti-Cosmo saying back if he does make it, he'd take his wife before closing their eyes. After the transplant, the exhausted doctor says that there is good news, bad news, worse news, and horrible news. The good news is that Cosmo and Anti-Cosmo are fine and back to normal. The bad news is their insurance isn't going to cover it. The worse news is Anti-Cosmo escaped. The horrible news is Anti-Cosmo is on the phone. Cosmo takes it and talks to Anti-Cosmo.

He says that they each share a lot in common and that they shouldn't do battle. Then he says to not look for him. Cosmo looks behind his back and sees Anti-Cosmo on the phone. Anti-Cosmo irritably said that he said to not look for him. He then says bye to Timmy and Wanda in Cosmo's voice and became freaked out before poofing away. Wanda thought it is weird. Then Cosmo says to Wanda where she is in Anti-Cosmo's voice.
